I use Caffeine++ to track my caffeine intake. Recently the App added tracking water intake into HealthKit (for the coffee and tea that I add). I could add custom drinks for plain water and milk, but might want to try a more specialized App for that.
Who’s using an App for tracking water intake? Which one? Tips?
Here are some aspects that are important to me:
Proper iPhone X (screen) support
No ads (optionally after In-App purchase)
No subscription (for this kind of App / while I’m still figuring out whether it adds value)
Custom drinks (with unique icons per drink)
Custom sizes (in Metric system)
Apple Watch support
Reminders (I only want to track for now)
There are a lot of Apps for this in the App Store, but I still have not found what I’m looking for…
I dont have black bars at the top/bottom of the screen on my iPhone X. Have you got the latest version (shiwn at the very bittom if the Settings screen) - the App Store update log states the app was updated 9 months ago to version 3.4 for iPhone X support and the latest version is 3.6.
You can also turn off the achievements gamification in the settings, but you can’t get rid of your last point of “filling a bidy”.
And then I remembered that I entered “WaterMinder” manually in the search field of the App Store. I now see that there are (of course?) several Apps with the same name. Using the URL provided by @RosemaryOrchard I end up with a different App (which I apparently also tried before) which does indeed support the iPhone X screen.
Both Apps have there pros and cons, but both should suffice for initial testing.
I do wish there was a more clean App like Caffeine++…
I have a Workflow setup to log my water intake. It presents a list of preset quantities (Water bottle - 700ml, Pint - 568ml, 500ml bottles, etc) along with a other option which allows me to enter the amount drunk. It then creates a heath log entry for that amount of water. It then sums up the amount of water I’ve drunk that day and displays it so I know how much I’ve drunk.
I use this mainly on the Workflow AppleWatch app to quickly capture what I’m drinking, and I use the health app to keep an eye on my average intakes, which is usually around 3-3.5 Liters a day.
Is there a way to use Workflow but log caffeine rather than water? I currently use workflow to log water and love that it is customizable and free, but want a solution for logging caffeine to the health app. So the selection would be something like:
Then would ask for the size based on the previous selection:
Having used WaterMinder for a (one) whole day I’d have to admit I really like the many ways I can easily add a drink with this App (within the App, 3D Touch, Widget, Apple Watch). I also like the list part in the history tab.
Thank you for the recommendation, @RosemaryOrchard. I think my search is over (I even put the App on my home screen), unless someone can recommend an App similar to this one (or Caffeine++) that combines water & caffeine intake in one App…
Yes. There is a Log Health Sample action in Workflow which allows you to select a type, one of which is caffeine. You’ll need to workout how much caffeine is in each of those drinks and size, this site might help.
I have another Workflow I use to create a Health app entry with my weight as i don’t have a set of fancy connected scales. It simply prompts me to enter my weight and passes that the Log Health Sample action to create the entry.
I have also just ventured into the strange world of apps that tell you when to drink water. At first, I thought it was a joke. But I’ve been using WaterMinder for a few days and I like it. I have certainly drunk more water and I guess that’s a good thing😊
